RUGBY LEAGUE

PROSER­PINE bounced back from last week­end’s loss in the best pos­si­ble way on Satur­day with an im­pres­sive 38-6 win over the Walk­er­ston Wests.

Play­ing in front of Wests’ home crowd the Brah­mans were switched on from kick off and ran in seven tries to Wests one in the 32-point win.

The win was the Brah­mans ninth from eleven games this sea­son and they sit out­right sec­ond on the lad­der, two points be­hind com­pe­ti­tion heavy­weights Souths.

The re­serves were big win­ners in their match run­ning home 46-30 in a thor­oughly-en­ter­tain­ing game.

Proser­pine ran in nine tries to Wests six and scored a much needed vic­tory to get their stut­ter­ing sea­son back on track.

A lack of avail­able play­ers se­verely cost the Brah­mans un­der-18s as Wests ran roughshod over them to post a 54-0 win.

The mas­sive loss was to be ex­pected as the Brah­mans strug­gled for num­bers af­ter a num­ber of play­ers were un­able to make the trip to Mackay.

The loss is only the team’s sec­ond loss of the sea­son and they will be hope­ful of a bet­ter turnout at their home game this week­end.

All teams are in ac­tion against Souths at Les Stagg Oval this Sun­day with the un­der-18s kick­ing off at 11.30am, the re­serves at 1pm and the main game at 3pm.
